In this paper the author examines various levels of curriculum (explicit, covert, null, hidden, and functional) as they may be found in any undergraduate teacher education program. Examples are first given from a model of these curriculum levels applied to teaching physical education. The principal section of the paper focuses on what those levels look like when applied to teacher education, with particular emphasis on the total impact of all curriculum levels acting together as the "real" or functional curriculum which actually works to produce what students learn about teaching physical education.
